He was the man who introduced Obi-Wan to Chewie, but yet, his true identity was unknown. The name of the actor who played STAR WARS cantina character BoShek has remained a mystery for decades…Until earlier this week. Thanks to the efforts of crime reporter Billy Jensen (with a little help from Cantina expert Tom Spina), BoShek has finally been identified. This week on RFR, Billy tells us how he discovered who was the man behind BoShek and explains why he took on the task. The junior novelization for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS hits store shelves on February 16th. Author Michael Kogge joins us In The Cantina for a behind-the-scenes look at how the book came together.
